7 Ways You can Organize Your Stash!
There’s really no doubt about how much us crocheters and crafters love our yarn! However, we do seem to have drastically different methods when it comes to storing it! Here are 7 ways to organize your stash.
Neat and Tidy
Some people have a neat and tidy system to organize their stash! Whether it’s in a cupboard, labeled in boxes or on shelves – an organized stash is a thing of beauty and definitely worth showing off!
Ever get that feeling that you should look into that one drawer/cupboard/room that you always throw your yarn into? The cave storing system is definitely a common one for crocheters. Even though it’s not the prettiest, at least you’re sure your yarn is safe and sound (somewhere)!
Pet Owner Special
Pet owners have their own set of challenges to deal with! We think our feline housemates love our yarn as much as we do! We advise either investing in paw proof storage or just surrender to your fluffy apprentice!
Small and Simple
Small. Simple. And a great conversation starter! You might not go large with your stash, but your yarn collection certainly gets people talking! Perfect for crocheters who prefer to crochet-as-you-go, storing just enough for your next project means you are never inundated with unnecessary balls! And as your yarn doesn’t take up too much space (and looks oh so pretty!), you can easily display in your bedroom or living space as a decorative feature!
The dream! Your own local yarn store. Let’s just say, resisting a good yarn sale is not your forte. Of course, a well organized stash needs 10 different shades of blue! Whether it’s wool, cotton or acrylic, you have it all!
This one is a bit like the cave, except it’s out in the open – and your stash mostly consists of leftover scraps from earlier projects! You always promise yourself to use them one day, but then another awesome pattern comes along and nothing from your stash is enough or the right shade. And so the circle begins again.
Stash, What Stash?
New yarn, new project! You might be one of those rare knitters who prefer not to stash at all! Equipped with resourcefulness and excellent planning skills, your nimble crochet abilities means you’ve always got the perfect amount of yarn for your current project. And if there ever should be small amounts left over, you immediately start a scrap blanket, which is both efficient and pretty!
